Comment:

This mix started as a punk mix, but then I decided to make a driving mix, but then I decided that I'd just go for something upbeat to listen to, and here I am. I also limited myself to one song per artist. I tied it together with Green Day's "Walking Contradiction", because while all the songs here sound rather upbeat, some have a negative message/vibe and some are purely uplifting. One of my favorites is Lit's "Lovely Day" ("Such a lovely day and it's nothing more than ordinary") leading into Eve 6's "Nightmare" ("In my nightmare I feel so alive"). The dichotomy between simiply living being a nightmare verses being lovely was interesting, and such differences occur across the mix.

So I guess it's a simple concept, and the thing flows pretty well, and with a mild overburn it fits on a regular CD-R.

I'd like comments though, if anyone has any...this is one of my first mixes that I actually took more than 5 minutes to make at random.
